You have said it!!! Despite my dislike of school back then but I would live those years over again in  a heartbeat. We were a generation - despite growing up in the 60s - that was taught to respect people, especially our elders and as you say it didn't do us any harm - au contraire
Those days are gone forever, I'm afraid.
The discipline instilled in us, albeit by fear mostly, gave me a basis of behaviour towards others and a respect for authority.
Although, in recent times, my respect for the latter has diminished somewhat!
